In order to understand the appropriate rate for the smartphone used in the UK, you need to understand how rates are properly formulated. In average, the UK used smartphones cost 30 per cent less than the original rate after 6 months of use; and phones used for a year or more continue to sell half the original sticker price (50 per cent) and often more.

It does not always apply to every seller to decide the true price of a product, but as a customer it is a nice deal to look at. This helps you to know what you’re going to get in and get more bang for your dollar. The older the device, the less you’re expected to pay.

Now this doesn’t entirely apply to all devices as some have more value than others and sometime the demand for a product will determine if the price stays stagnant or goes down (in the case of the Iphones).
